HikingGreat!MuddyRocky

The green is just exploding right now. Not a lot of berries on the trail, and not much sign of bear, but I was surprised at this hike once it opens up. I did the Winner Creek via Crow Creek Rd, stopped and turned around at the hand tram (still closed) then decided to see the hand tram from the other side (think this was the trail) now I know it was the left at the T. Beautiful day out, looked rainy, but it stayed dry for me.

Quite a lot of snow and ice still, especially in the first couple miles. Still nice.

Lovely trail. Still a bit of winter left. Trekking poles Highly Recommend. Some light packed snow and ice on the first mile. Deeper snow and more ice after that. After 2 miles snow periodically washes out over the trail. Turned around after about 3 miles in.

Running

Loved swimming in the lake. wear shoes if nothing else, sharp rocks. Just beautiful and lovely for biking and running. Water super low this year (2019) dog friendly except 1 river crossing could be sketchy in wet years. Plan for wet feet. Also a few log crossings require either excellent balance or wet feet

Did the trail all the way up to Berry Pass. It was beautiful! The hand tram is back open but after the first mile and a half of trail there weren’t many other people around so it was very quiet. There were lots of wild blueberries and salmonberries along the way. The only complaint I have is that the flies were horrendous. If we stopped for more than fifteen seconds they would swarm, but once we crossed the waterfall they didn’t seem to be a problem anymore. If you’re planning to go all the way to berry pass definitely plan for your feet to get wet...there isn’t really a way to cross the waterfall and stay dry.

went 7.5 in to Berry Pass... magical fields and glacial ponds at the top with views for days (even despite the smoke) had some water crossings (including a big one) and wet feet, but that was welcome with the heat.
